Letterman Extends Late Show Contract To 2010

In what will eventually set up an interesting rivalry between a late night legend and his NBC successor, CBS today announced that they have secured David Letterman through 2010, a full year after Conan O’Brien, who replaced Letterman at NBC when he jumped to CBS, is slated to take over for Letterman’s rival, Jay Leno, at the Tonight Show. Letterman’s salary? Somewhere “north of $30 million.”

Hopefully, Letterman — and, more specifically, his red-headed cohort Alan Kalter [above] — will be as edgy then and they have been lately.
